FAQ

HOW DOES THE WATCH LOOK ON A SMALL WRIST?
GREAT!

WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE WATCH?

FACE (including wood frame / bezel)
1 9/16" (42 mm) across, and 1/2" (127 mm) thick

IS WEWOOD WATER RESISTANT?
No, but you can consider it splash-proof ;) It does just fine in the kitchen, even on the beach, but please don't take WeWOOD swimming! Like any natural wood, the wood slightly expands when getting wet, and this makes the flexibility of the links less supple. Generally, the wood fully recovers when dry.

CAN I REPLACE THE BATTERY?
Yes, you can replace the battery at any jewelry or watch shop.

WHAT ARE THE WOODS USED IN WEWOOD WATCHES?

Red Wing Celtis (BROWN)

This tree is often used for flooring and WeWood uses the remnant pieces that would otherwise be destroyed.

Blackwood

Blackwood is a hardwood native to Tasmanias forests and is the perfect timber for delicate craftswork. It is easily worked, very stable and long lasting. Blackwoods durable seed remains viable for decades, making this delicate timber easy to grow, ensuring sustainability. 

Maple (BEIGE)

The wood of this tree is often used in smoke houses and in culinary arts. It's also used to create many musical instruments like the violin and the guitar.

Guaiaco (ARMY)

Guaiaco is a tree native to South America used in pharmaceutical preparations of herbal teas. This wood is known for its powerful healing properties for those suffering from pain, including people suffering from arthritis.

Please note that the color of your unique WeWood wooden watch may vary slightly, as wood is a natural material.

HOW DO I CLEAN MY WEWOOD WATCH?
To keep your natural wooden watch clean and looking its best you can use items from around your house! For unvarnished wood, mix two teaspoons of olive oil and lemon juice, apply a small amount to a soft cotton cloth, and distribute evenly to the watch.

HOW DO I KEEP MY WEWOOD WATCH LOOKING LIKE NEW?
If you wear your watch daily, you could notice the wood getting lighter over time. If this occurs, try applying a natural coating such as beeswax, lip balm, butcher block oil, or walnut oil. Doing this regularly, about once a month, can help protect the wood against damage and help it remain durable.


About WeWood

The baby of an Italian shoe dude who loves watches and two eco-smart entrepreneurs with a crush on the environment, WE fashions wooden timepieces from mostly scrap-wood and uses state-of-the-art Miyota movements for the guts, resulting in a unique watch that's handsome, earth-friendly, and splash-proof.
With this happy pact, the goal is to help restore Mother Nature, one watch at a time, by planting a tree for every WeWOOD purchased. In just the first three months, WEwood planted 5,000 trees with American Forests, and sets challenging targets for 2011 and beyond. Keeping forests healthy and happy keeps us healthy and happy, we like to keep our reminder on our wrist.
